KOOL-AID Tie-Dye Easter Eggs Project

Looking for something different to do this spring with your Easter eggs? Here's a great idea on using KOOL-AID to color your eggs this year. I'm going to give it a try myself!
WHAT YOU NEED:
  • 2 env. (0.13 to 0.16 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any red color (try Cherry, Black Cherry, Strawberry or Tropical Punch flavor)
  • 2 env. (0.14 oz. to 0.15 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any orange color (try Orange, Mango or Peach Mango flavor)
  • 2 env. (0.13 oz. to 0.23 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any yellow or green color (try Lemonade, PiƱa or Lemon-Lime flavor)
  • 2 env. (0.22 oz. each) KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any blue color (try Mixed Berry or Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade flavor)
  • 1/2 cup water, divided
  • 1-1/2 doz. hard-cooked eggs, cooled
WHAT TO DO:

STEP ONE:
Mix contents of 2 (same-flavored) KOOL-AID envelopes with 2 Tbsp. water in 6- to 8-oz. container; stir to dissolve drink mixes. Repeat in 3 separate containers with remaining KOOL-AID envelopes.

STEP TWO:
Place eggs on cooling rack in sink; rinse eggs with tap water.

STEP THREE:
Spoon KOOL-AID mixtures, 1 at a time, over wet eggs to create tie-dye patterns. Repeat with remaining eggs.

STEP FOUR:
Pour a little tap water over each egg to set colors. Use tongs to transfer eggs to paper towel-covered baking sheet to dry. Rinse sink immediately as needed.
